This is a nice, healthy, pleasantly spicy and warming stew like soup. This can also be done in a crock pot but will take all day. The cooking time does not reflect the overnight soaking of the beans. This recipe can also be made with spinach but I don't think it would be as good.
I came across this recipe in the most serendipitous manner...on my way to work going 50mph I saw some trash blowing across the road...it got stuck to my car and I could hear it fluttering all the way to work. When I got out of my car I found a piece of newspaper stuck to my front grill. I took it off and what was it? A torn out page from a week old newspaper that has 4 yummy sounding recipes! Wow. I feel obligated to post them now. This one sites: Cook's Illustrated.

I had a similar salad from a deli and tried to duplicate it. This is what I ended up with. I think it's fabulous! The deli salad was my first experience trying hearts of palm...now they're a new favorite!
This is adapted from Cooking Light magazine. It doesn't say to toast the bread but I did. I just found out someone else had this posted already so I'm changing it to my version. I can imagine eating this wrapped in lettuce leaves or as a tortilla wrap too. It is good with and without the mayo. YUM!
This was inspired by Chef Potpie's recipe#197754. I went to make it and thought it was missing tomatoes...I realized I had some sundried tomatoes and other flavorful add-ins and came up with this. It turned out very yummy. I love the tangy additions with the salami. To me this is a meal in itself! You could add onion to this also if you like. I might even try it with some capers next time. Hmm...and perhaps feta cheese instead of mozzarella with shredded chicken or no meat for greek potatoes! It's so fun to experiment. This could also be made in the oven or with leftover roasted potatoes or canned potatoes. Enjoy!
Here's a tasty recipe my Mother made up a few years back. I remember it being really good. She wrote her guess at the measurements down on a recipe card afterwards. Her note says it's great over pan fried sole fillets. It makes enough to top 4 fillets.
I just switched to stainless steel cookware this year. I've had several instances where I get food bonded to the bottom of a pan. One day my Mother was visiting and I was complaining about it. She said, "cream of tartar". I said, "huh"? She said it just popped into her head that my Great Grandmother used to say to sprinkle cream of tartar in a hard to clean stainless steel pan put some water in it and boil it until the crud comes off. Guess what? It works everytime! *This is my favorite posting because it has helped so many people...and apparently it works on more than stainless steel. :)
This is adapted from a photo copy from a book or magazine. It says "The Best Light Recipe" at the top. My notes were to increase the lemon and decrease the basil. So I offered that below. Please use fresh lemon and herbs. Using the oven method gives you a fluffy and chewy brown rice instead of wet and soupy or burnt and crunchy.
This is from "Herbs and Spices the Cook's Reference" by Jill Norman. I've never seen one like this! It sounds more like a flavored oil sauce. Serve with poached or baked fish, grilled meats, artichokes, cauliflower or broccoli.
I had some mushrooms to use up and couldn't find any recipes that I wanted to make or that I had all of the ingredients for. So I decided to play with some of my favorite flavors together to make a vegetarian no bread-crumb stuffed mushroom. I had so much fun with this one that I also made green chile stuffed mushrooms and am going to post that recipe next! I had to write down a few more ideas for the next time I have mushrooms on hand. Playing with food is fun!
